Anyone Use/Using Engravable Photo Frame for Guest Book?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Is anyone using/or has used an engravable photo frame with an engravable mat for their guest book? I just ordered one and love the idea of it. I like that I can display it in our home after the wedding and will also have the guests at our VERY casual AHR sign it. I'm worried about carrying it on the plane though...it it will be too cumbersone, etc. What if anything did or will you use to display the frame at your reception? Also...did you attach the pen to the frame in any way? I'm worried about someone walking off with the only pen that can be used!! Thanks.

Hi,

 

I did use one for my wedding...it was 20 x25 with a place for an 8x10 photo. It was very large and I was barely able to pack it in a bag. I didn't want to chance having it as a carry-on as it exceeds the limit in size. As far as wanting an 8x10 frame....I have never seen one of these that small...you need to have space to place the photo and room around it in which your guests can sign it.

I had an 11 x 14 engraveable photo frame that fit a 5 x 7 photo. You could fit it into a carry-on bag. However, we did not fly, we were married on a cruise and were within driving distance to the cruise port, so we just carried it onto the cruise in the original shipping box and made a carrying strap for the box out of duct tape... lol.

We just had the frame set out on a table. We were able to keep up with the pen suprisingly, but we didn't attach it to the frame in any way. The frame came with a 5x7 instruction card for the guests that we put into a double photo frame and set up next to the signature frame. On one side of the double frame we had the instruction card, on the other side, we had a 5X7 photo of our two dogs dressed up in wedding clothes with a note on the photo that said "Don't forget to sign the guestbook".

I got mine from Overstock.com but the engraving did not come out well at all...no matter how hard you press...it is very light.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
